Local Produce

Singapore imports over 90% of its food supply.

In Singapore, we produce less than 10% of our own food. According to 2021 figures shared by the Singapore Food Agency (SFA), there are 260 farms which covers just 1% of the country's land area.

 

Vegetable and fish farms contribute to 4% and 8% of local consumption respectively. The remainder are imported from across 180 diverse locations around the world.

 

The latest reports point to promising growth for local production while highlighting the need to always be vigilant about supply chain issues and safeguard our food security.

How we're supporting '30 by 30'

Singapore has set an ambitious target to increase domestic food production by 2030, aiming to produce 30% of our nutritional needs locally within the next decade. This is up from the present figures of just under 10%.

 

To approach this goal, we have to raise awareness of the benefits of local produce, while getting more residents to choose locally grown food where available.

 

Urban Origins highlights our local farms and help our farmers gain the visibility they need for people to buy their produce.
